7th March Thoughts from Spain

7th March Thoughts from Spain

We made our way out from Manchester airport last Sunday, not quite three days after the original planned departure from Glasgow airport, which was cancelled amidst the late winter snow in Scotland and much of England.

It can take a couple of days to get into the rhythm of life in this part of the Costa Del Sol; silly little worries about a couple of defunct light bulbs and a broken toaster.

Waking up this morning, the sun had decided to come out and the sky was blue.

Lindsey and myself made a list of small errands for the little apartment, a “pueblo” at Capistrano Village in Nerja. We drove down, parked up next to Beijing Bazaar and had soon got our chores done for the day. We plan to collect the car tomorrow.

The beach at Torrecilla still has debris from the recent weather, unusual for the Costa del Sol; plastic bottles, broken bamboo sticks and cans sit on the high water-line. We sit and soak on the sun, with others welcoming some gentle heat.

The Tapas as ever helps, a couple of new Bars to go with old favourites; Sevilla and Rotunda where a glass of nice white or red Rioja can be drunk with a choice of gambas, queso, patatas con aioli, jambon de seranno and so much more.

Tonight there is some classical music at the community social hub at Capistrano where I attended by first Annual General Meeting yesterday. I kept by hand down when invitations were asked from the floor for new Committee members. Enough. The average age would be 70 plus. All nice people, polite and mainly comfortable.

Later, we will walk down to Irish Annie’s where my sister in law’s friend Jackie is playing music.

Tomorrow, Manana can wait.

Michael and Lindsey in Nerja
